SMCC offers two associate degrees in Business Administration.
In either case, the programs provide students with a foundation in general business practices, leadership concepts, and microcomputer applications. Building confidence and the ability to succeed in the world of business is of the utmost importance in our courses. In addition to acquiring skills in accounting, finances, sales, and operations, students enhance their ability to write, think, work in groups, and solve problems.
Many students often determine that a dual degree is an appropriate career choice. Typically, it makes an introduction to the opportunities that exist in other fields and helps the student to see that business and technology training merge to provide excellent career paths.
Students are encouraged to demonstrate an understanding of technical disciplines and how these contribute to the success of an organization’s products. The intent is to increase workplace potential for each student as he or she faces a rapidly changing world.

Graduates of the Business Administration program who wish to pursue a baccalaureate degree may take advantage of existing or pending transfer agreements with Husson College, Thomas College, the University of Southern Maine, or the University of Maine at Augusta. Although students can transfer from either business program, the associate in science option may be more appropriate if transferring to a four year program is the primary objective of the student.
